I'm not sure how versatile they really are...opaques and girly dresses but what else? Not too sure about jeans or trousers? I've got some but wondering whether to hang on to them. TIA http://www.schuh.co.uk/womens/hush-puppies-vivianna-black-boots/1406167020/?_$ja=cgid:20331161591|tsid:34908|cid:170733431|lid:77282952053|nw:g|crid:66475078031|rnd:4381382690925333341|dvc:m|adp:1o1|bku:1&gclid=CP3bnNTTgckCFQQTwwodSjAGvA
Haha! This is the honesty I was after. Give it to me straight! Its pretty much what my dd said anyway. I like em becausr they're different but I ve only really worn them once. Any positives or just no?!
Steampunk yes. I like quirky but its not truly me. I just want things that are timeless these days. Not so much up to the minute fashion as just what I truly like. Partly a decluttering thing. And since I am on here having this discussion I clearly don't love them enough. my dd said they'd be great for Halloween mind
I'm sorry. I didn't realise you had worn them. I thought you were wondering whether to return them. You might be able to make them work as part of a victoriana look. Perhaps skinny jeans and a blouse. Have a look at Oasis.
i have worn my sim pair quite a bit over the years. Tend to downplay them with mannish trousers and plain shirts and skirts of all lengths. But they also have dress up evening wear potential e.g. gathered midi taffeta skirt and plain top. Key for me, as have a weakness for potentially costumey items e.g. cowgirl boots!- is the take away 1 accessory rule after i put together what i think is a great outfit [ but know my dd wd disagree!] I say keep them [ as i know you want to ] and make them work.
Armarmai - thanks for your input, but I don't really want a costumey look, I just want to stick with stuff that's timeless and I genuinely love. I've decided they are for the chop, destination ebay. I just feel a bit self conscious in them and while on the right person they look fab, I think I would get so little wear out of them there's no point keeping them. I think they'd be best with tea dresses and I live in jeans.
